The daughter of a musically gifted minister, Hannah Williams AKA Deep Soul's Funkiest New Diva was immersed in soulful music from the day she was born. Her first single, an independently released 45, reached out into the soul scene and drew praise from Daptone Records artists, Craig Charles on his BBC radio show and various labels and promoters. Hannah and the band were signed by the Italian Record Kicks label just weeks after the release of the vinyl single. Whilst recording the anticipated debut LP, due to finally drop in 15th October 2012, the outfit crept onto a couple of festival bills, headlining a stage at Larmer Tree and flying to Italy to play the penultimate set on the main stage at Jazz Re:Found. The London-based band are setting off on a UK tour in May to promote their single ahead of the festival season, where they are sure to be the biggest surprise act on any European stage.
